The charity believed it had won a campaign – to make it illegal for an adult to communicate with a child for the purpose of sexual gratification – when it won the personal backing of David Cameron.

The Saturday SLAA Trailblazers Video meeting uses a web conferencing system, so all you need is any PC, Mac, i Phone, smartphone, i Pad or tablet with a camera, microphone and speakers attached and turned on to participate.
We use e-mail, phone calls and [email protected] meetings to support each other, we encourage you to share your contact details only with members who are safe contacts for you.
Some people may think that images and videos only last a few seconds on social media and then they're deleted, but they can still be saved or copied by others.
This means that photos or videos which a young person may have shared privately could still be end up being shared between adults they don't know.
